      The UK government is to withdraw from an agreement which allows foreign fisherman access to British waters.

      It has announced it will begin the process of leaving the London Fisheries Convention, giving two years notice of its intention.

      Signed in 1964, it allows vessels from six European countries to fish between six and 12 miles from the coast.

      UK environment secretary Michael Gove said it was an important step in “taking back control” of fishing.
